If you’re a creative type who loves music, songwriting, big ideas, and having a lot of fun, Erik Ritland isn’t so Bad is your kind of podcast.

On ERisB, Music in Minnesota editor Erik Ritland explores classic rock n’ roll and Americana, discusses interesting ideas from literature, philosophy, and history, and examines creativity and how it works. 

In addition to editing Music in Minnesota, Erik is also a songwriter. Each episode of ERisB features one of his songs, including an in-depth analysis of its creation and the creative process.

Topics for the second episode include Music in Minnesota’s Value Our Venues fundraiser, how (and why) to love country music, the Mount Rushmore of 70s guitarists, an important songwriting insight, and two big announcements, including information on a special fall re-issue of Erik’s 2008 album Floating Bridge.

For the segment on one of his own songs, Erik discusses “Stay Inside,” a song about the end of the world that was a turning point in his songwriting.
